Mane Chance Northern Soccer Clinic


We are delighted to announce details of our first Northern Soccer Clinic to be run in association with Everton Legend, Duncan Ferguson and supported by Messenger Express. Following our two highly successful clinics in Surrey with Roy Hodgson and Sammy Lee, Duncan has agreed to run a clinic for children with the proceeds going to the Sanctuary. Ferguson, who will be leading the clinic with support from Everton in the Community (EitC) coaches, said: “I’m delighted to be able to support them as they visit the North West. Mane Chance Sanctuary is unique in the way that it supports both animals and people, so hopefully lots of young footballers will sign up and help the charity impact more lives than ever before. EitC delivers an extremely high standard of football training 12 months of the year and I’m sure that, together, we can put on a fun and engaging session for everyone who attends – see you there.”

The clinic will be held on Saturday 24th June, 2017 and will take place at the JMO Sports Park, Skelmersdale. Children from 7-14 years of age are invited to participate in a 2 hour coaching session overseen by Duncan. Each child will receive a football to take home with them on the day. This is the opportunity for players of any standard to come from anywhere in the country to play football in front of a real legend! Jenny Seagrove, founder of Mane Chance Sanctuary said; “Duncan Ferguson scored 72 goals at Everton and to have this Everton FC icon, legend and first team coach lead our Soccer school is totally amazing. He is an inspiration to us all and I am so grateful to him for giving his time to Mane Chance and the horses and children we help”.

The coaching fee is just £30 but places will be limited so entries will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Closing date for receipt of entries is Monday 19th June. Forms can be downloaded here Registration Form or by email request to
